Heavier women
I'm a tad bit overweight from when I started my pregnancy. And I carry most of my weight around my belly. I am just wondering when women like me start to show?

That's a pretty average time for first pregnancies to show, at 22 weeks. Here is something that is quite common though for heavier women . . . they typically gain less weight!  Some even lose weight.  The theory of why some are heavier is because their calorie take in for the day is higher and usually it doesn't go up much if any once pregnancy so they actually either maintain their weight or lose some pounds as their body cooks that baby!  My good friend lost like 5 pounds pregnant after starting her pregnancy over weight.  Just mentioning that because that is often welcome by some women.  :>)  Congrats on the pregnancy

I started showing around 4 months hard I believe it depends on the weight you start off with.. When I found out I was pregnant I lost alot of weight due to nausea in plus exercises.so it really depends good luck with the showing process it takes a while

I started showing early like 16 weeks. I'm on the heavier side but still haven't gained weight. I'm all baby. I'm 30 weeks 5 days and look big but my weight is still the same

I'm am also a little heavy. With my first baby I did not show till about 25 weeks and only ended up gaining 1 pound in the end. I'm now 7 weeks 6 days with my second baby and my body is already changing shape. I have not gained any weight yet but it looks like all my larger areas are relocating to my stomach.
